Vision: From the Life of Hildegard von Bingen

This film was at the library yesterday, so the family enjoyed viewing tonight.

My wife mentioned that she was always afraid of her. Stern. Powerful. All-knowing. This film seemed to soften that view. This is good, as her birthday is the saint’s feast.

The young miss: “It’s okay.” But she was glued to the tv like the rest of us.

My only wish was to see more of Hildegard as musician and composer, but the one scene from Ordo Virtutum was impressive. The young miss commented that the “devil” would get dizzy and fall after being bound up by the virtues.
